Try command "DIR/S" without quotes to see all files including those  
with "S" or system flag set.  You'll find PIP.ABS, SYSCMD.SYS,  
RGT.SYS, GRT.SYS and hopefully some of the rest of HDOS.  INIT37.ABS  
is a soft-sector floppy initialization program, but I'm not sure if  
your soft-sectored controller is an H37. With INIT37.ABS or its  
equivalent for you controller and SYSGEN.ABS you should be able to  
copy your boot disk.
